24-hour strike Thursday, December 8
EPSU General Secretary wrote to EPSU affiliated unions in Greece to express EPSU’s support for their 24-hour strike action today, Thursday 8 December. We find it astonishing that the Eurogroup is demanding further reductions in worker and trade union rights.
We agree wholeheartedly with the ITUC and ETUC who argue that these measures will do nothing to improve the performance of the Greek economy.
Collective bargaining and employment rights have already been radically undermined as a result of pressure from the Eurogroup and previously the Troika and it is apparent that an economy based on precarious employment will never deliver a sustained and equitable recovery.
